NRG/California Energy Commission Hearings

by The Editors on January 28, 2010


On February 1-4, 2010 the citizens of Carlsbadistan will have the chance to speak out regarding NRG West’s plans for a 550-mega watt power plant on the shores of Agua Hedionda Lagoon. According to Power of Vision Carlsbad, here are a few of the reasons why a new power plant just might be a bad idea:

• Huge carbon footprint
• 10 times increase in air pollution
• 40 more years harnessed with fossil fuel-burning technology
• Economics hardship for tourism industry
• Major safety concerns cited with I-5 expansion
• Industrialization of coastal lands
• Long Beach or La Jolla? You decide
• Noise impact as loud as jet engines
• Will make Carlsbad industrial epicenter
• No contract with SDG&E
• Two power plants • Decreases property values

The hearings will be held in the Hilton Garden Inn Ballroom Building at 6450 Carlsbad Blvd, Carlsbadistan:

Monday, February 1, 2010; 10:30am, Public comment period begins at 6:00pm
Tuesday, February 2, 2010; 9:00am, Public comment period begins at 6:00 pm
Wednesday, February 3, 2010; 9:00am, Public comment period at 6:00p.m. if necessary
Thursday, February 4, 2010 at 9:00a.m.

Might as well show up and let them know how you feel about it.
